After starling rak on farther Belling
Against free acceptances In the southwest,
tha market steadied somewhat on covering
by ahorta, only to weaken again and close
lower. Eat I males of sales oy the country
laat night ran aa high aa I.OOO.OOO bushels,
mostly No. 2 red. The hard wheat haa not
tha whole, and weather la fine. Indlcatlona
are for higher temperature and continued
near conditions. While little export dusi
ness vn said to have been wurked, and
little wheat sold to miller, thla bualneaa
la so email that It give no hope of any
material quantity being worked. The fu
ture la purely a matter of the Ideaa of
consumers here and abroad, unlets, of
course, some accident ahould happen In the
northwest to cause alarm fur the spring
Corn held Arm, with tome complaint
coming In reaped to lack of warmth and
moisture through thla Btate. It aeema that
rain and higher temperature would be
beneficial to the Prop under existing con
ditions. Country acceptance continue light.
Oete onntinue to drag, gales were large
again overnight, resulting In pressure on
the near deliveries, the far month going
off on realising and favorable reports re
specting the crop. There neve been a lot
of oats dumped on the market In the lest
two or three days and It Is probable the
trade la pretty well evened up. .

CATTLE There were no fresh receipts
of cattle today and the total for the week.
shows a most decider tailing orr as com
pared with last week and .with a year
The week startad out with a good,
strong market on all kinds of cattle, sn J
with the best grades quoted a little
higher. The trade waa fairly active, the
receipt changing hands freely at current
prices. The intervention of a holiday
seemed to mark the coming of a change.
During the latter half of the week tho
trade waa slow, and, while the best kinds
were quoted about steady, it was very evi
dent that the wire edge was gone from all
other gradea. For the week, aa a result,
it would he safe to quote the best rattle
fully steady, with the medium to common
kinds lei5c lower. This Is the season
of the year when Texas csttle art always
used aa a club to pound down the marktt
on the common to, medium grades of na
tives and that Is given ss the reason for
the weakness that haa been developed this
Cows and tielfers of good quality sold
verv well during the first part of the
week, but during the latter half buyers
begsn talking about shipping Texas beef,
and it became very evident that they no
longer wanted the grass cows at the price
that they had been paying. Friday's
market was very much demoralised on
that kind. For the week the best fed
cows and heifers showed but little change,
while other kinds sre 25f4c lower, anil
In some cases probably aa much as $0e
lower on the more common greasers.
Stockers and feeders did not show very
much change during the week, both sup
ply, and demand Deng rompsrauveiy Er. Bt . -. . .

SHEEP There were no fresh receipta
of aheep In sight this morning and noth
ing to make a market. This week range
sheep and lamb have commenced coming
forward, with the reeult that the receipta
have been Increased somewhat over last
ek and a year ago.
The market during the week haa been
rather unaettled and It haa been no easy
matter to quota It from day to day, es
pecially aa tho receipts have consisted
largely of odds and ends of fed stock and
of scattering lots of rangers. It Is safe
to say that medium to common kinds, es
pecially lamns, are lower than last week.

THIRTEEN A LUCKY NUMBER
Another Link In the Romantic Coldea
Chain of a Hawaiian
Pen of novelist has mrely woven so In
teresting a romance as that Involved In
the marriage In Davenport. Is., a few days
ao of Miss Anna Elisabeth Whiting, niece
of Rear Admlra! Whiting, to Albert F.
Afong of Honolulu. While his bride 1s
thoroughly American, Afong Is the sou of
a full-fledged Chinese. Still more unusitnl,
however. Is the fact that he has no less
than thirteen sisters, three of whom have
married Into the American navy, as he may
be said to 'have done, and a fourth Into
the army. One of these is the wlfo of
Resr Admlrsl Whiting, so that by this
latfst union she will become the aunt Ss
well aa the sister of young Afong.
Of the others, one la the wife of Lieu
tenant Rlggs of the navy; one of Jame
W. Brewster, who served on the cruiser
Harvard In the Ppanlfh-Amerlcan war, and
a third of Lieutenant Andrew 3. Dougherty
of the army. Albert waa the last mem
ber of the family remaining unmarried.
His courtship, like that of hi sisters, began
under the coecanut trees of the Pacific Is
land, and th family looks to him for the
perpetuation of a name already known In
every capital of the world, and especially
In the best circle along the Pacific coast
For twenty year naval officers have told
of the delightful hospitality afforded them
In the Afong horn while their ships lay at
anchor in Honolulu bay
Tourist have come back from Hawaii
telling of the gorgeous seml-orlental man
si on of Wing Ah Fong the name has since
been Americanised and Mrs. Concepclon
Ah Fong, who la a mixture of Spanish and
Portuguese. Every one who ha been In
the islands talks of the charming manner.
the brlght-hued gown, the languorous trop
leal ballade and the fund of good nature of
the highly attractive progeny of Wing Ah
Fong. millionaire, of the South Sea.
Along about 1838 a young Chinese bearing
this nam came with a shipload of his
fellow countrymen to Honolulu. He wns
unususlly Intelligent and genial, and, with
a little capital, soon built up a prosperous
business In Chinese crockery, silks and
bric-a-brac. In a short time h was tin
leading merchant .of Honolulu. He spent
